Does it nosedive, when tumbling down a big wave.
I guess she does.
Lake tri only in my humble  opinion.

And even in those condition things might go wrong

To the same apparent wind angle that a slower sinker goes yes...  Is that the course as the slower sinker, no since the apparent wind is farther forward on the trimaran because the trimaran is going so much faster....

Mostly the fastest on the lake. Only berthing sucks, that's why most of them are with retracable Ama's.
This the more expensive european Danisch version

Which is something else then the corsair, this one is heavier  but you have a cabin.

Hi Veeger,

I am working as an engineer for several projects including AC 37. I work my butt off. Rather be sailing but I'll miss my work when sailing.

Going down the mineshaft is not a good look.  I get all the rest of it having sailed offshore multis of all kinds for the last 30 years or so.

The foredecker hangs on the mast to save his life, it might have been a rib crushing fall otherwise, or even worse. I do not like it.

how well does it tack?

Very lousy of course, most multi's do.
They lose their speed instantly when turning upwind.

the pickle forks look like fun. All the bigger cats I've been on, sail like a pizza box.

That's unfortunate. I don't know about others but I often find myself needing to tack to avoid grounding or collisions. Knowing I can tack/manuever quickly & easily is reassuring. Takes the stress out of the sail. Let's see: what else? Expensive to berth & can flip upside down.

Pass.

It's easy fun, fastest on the lake.

Exactly the reason why I do not sail Multi's.
There is one reason I would, falling dry. Sailing in the wadden.
And being beached on what they call het Wantij.
